We're trying to setup 2 identical printers which are located in the same room to be shared as the same printer. In other words we want the server to send print jobs to the first printer available but have the user only see one and be able to install a single printer.
I've seen this done in colleges and libraries but don't know how to actually do it.
The setup is as follows:
(2) HP 4050N printers, shared through a Windows 2000 print server.
So the scenario would be as follows:
User installs "HP4050" printer and prints to it but the Server will send the actual printjob to the first available of the 2 printers assigned to the sharename "HP4050".
Does this make sense? Can anyone help me or point me in the right direction?
